Unfortunately, this book does not give a complete or objective scientific assessment of Wolves. It does give a very restricted and clouded vision. It appears to be L. David Mech's doctoral dissertation, and based on this text it is hard to grasps how Purdue University could have granted PhD. The methodology used to develop the data for assessments cannot be duplicated, which is a main criterion for good scientific research. The text fails to give clear recommendations for further investigation which would allow confidence in the assessments of this document. The variables of this study are not addressed nor is there any fulfilling presentation as to how those that had a direct bearing on the study's outcome were handled or controlled. So what the text does give is a much skewed vision of what was happening between wolf and ungulate populations; and other environmental factors that had an influence on the results and conclusions. If you want a manuscript to reflect how to avoid Scientific Method errors you might want to read this book but no one should rely on its outcome assessment for giving sound results and/or a basis for extrapolating to the full wolf universe.
